Objection One: It isn’t fun.

I Answer That, Theology, theology, it isn’t just tautology; it edifies your being like a spiritual technology. You deride it, you critique it, but you secretly still seek it; God and goodness are the ends to which your very nature tends.
I Reply Objection One: Theology is plenty fun.
And I Reply Objection Two: God’s highest in the genus “True”
And I Reply Objection Three: That Jesus died for you and me.
And I Reply Objection Four: That with these teachings you can soar–beyond just words and theory into the high Empyrean. All these concepts, once you’ve known them, lead you to the summum bonum.
